An Informative Presentation for Family Caregivers:  
Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior

 

Family caregivers are invited to attend a presentation on Tuesday, February 19 from 1:00 – 2:30 PM atBroome West Senior Center, 2801 Wayne Street in Endwell.  “Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior” will be presented by staff from the Central NY Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.

 

During the middle stage of dementia, the person with the disease often starts to exhibit new behaviors that can be confusing for a caregiver. These behaviors are a form of communication and are essential to understanding the needs of the person with dementia. This presentation teaches caregivers how to decipher these behaviors as well as the best ways to respond.

 

Topics of discussion include how to identify common triggers for behaviors associated with dementia, the process for assessing and identifying challenging behaviors, and strategies to address some common dementia-related behaviors.

 

Pre-registration is requested; please call (607) 778- 2411 to reserve your seat.
